Automotive Navigation & Test

The Challenge

GNSS has gone from a dashboard-top convenience to a critical sensor signal utilized in a wide variety of automotive systems.

Driver assistance; enhanced performance of the drive train; braking, suspension and other subsystems; pre-deployment of safety mechanisms; telematics; optimization of fuel consumption; and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications are just a few critical applications for GNSS.

In order to fully test systems with integrated GNSS, they need to be tested under real-world conditions. However, the conventional test track is very costly and time-intensive. That's where simulation comes in.

We love to find new destinations as much as you.

We have an essential GNSS testing simulator. Also, think of it as an easily integrated, customized component that will add high value to your test systems for research, development, quality control and manufacturing.

Studies Indicate Test Time Reduced by 70-80%

A wide spectrum of real-world conditions can be replicated in a virtual lab environment. Testing through real time simulation of the vehicle and environment can be accomplished using a combination of fast standalone bench tests and highly integrated hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) technology.

GNSS Testing for the Entire Industry Value Chain

We help automotive application developers, subsystem manufacturers and others in the value chain ensure the reliable integration of GNSS receivers.

Whether testing on the bench top, production line or highly integrated hardware-in-the-loop, our simulation and test systems generate the exact same radio signal as transmitted by satellites but under the conditions you specify, anytime, anywhere.

Comprehensive GNSS testing via simulation benefits include:

  • Easy, fast, powerful and affordable
  • Reduces cost and time-to-market
  • Improves quality and reliability
  • Completely integrates into existing and advanced testing environment
  • Generates GPS RF according to test scenarios
  • Allows Multi-GNSS testing (GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and more)
  • Allows remote control via interfaces
  • Integrates API via SCPI commands

Put Us to the Test

As experts in GNSS signals, we help you make the most out of your applications for GNSS receivers and other technologies for positioning, navigation and timing.

Our hardware GPS/GNSS RF generating simulation platform is just a start. We provide applications assistance, integration services, training and startup support and a wide range of other services to get ahead and stay ahead in an ever growing mobile world.

For more than a decade, GPS has been at the core of the navigation systems used in all types of road vehicles, train systems and marine transport vehicles. As industry moves from standalone navigation systems to the advanced multi-sensor systems used in intelligent transportation systems (ITS), GPS signals remain a key component of these systems.

The development of autonomous vehicles for road, rail and water demands a comprehensive and repeatable test plan for GNSS. This white paper discusses and outlines testing methods for GNSS performance and vulnerabilities.

Land-vehicle autonomous navigation requires centimeter-level qualification tools to enable confidence build-up for delivery to open-road traffic insertion. External positioning sensors over a dedicated road section can be replaced with an embedded high-accuracy, highly responsive epoch-by-epoch differential GNSS receiver coupled with an inertial navigation system. The demonstated absolute accuracy and mobility extends the potential test area and minimizes cost for multi-environment validation.
